Spring 2007 edition
Take me out to the Cub game!
What could be better then watching Cubs baseball on a beautiful June afternoon? Watching
it from a rooftop across the street from Wrigley! Brixen & Ivy has
generously donated their roof top and lounge for 110 of Namastes
friends when the Cubs play the Padres on Sunday, June 17 at 1:20 PM.
Join us for a fun afternoon of baseball, friends, food and drinks. To
reserve your seats, call us at 773.715.9558. Tickets are $150 and
include food and drinks. Thank you Brixen Ivy for this generous donation!
In each newsletter, Namaste will proudly feature one student
- giving you an up-close look at what a Namaste education means to our
amazing kids. In the spotlight this quarter is Oscar, a 2nd-grader in
the dual language class.
Oscar, what is your favorite vegetable? Carrots, because it makes me stronger.
What is your favorite fruit? Green apples. I like when they are juicy.
What is your favorite yoga pose? Balancing stick.
What do you like about Namaste? Everyone learns something, and everyone behaves.
What is your favorite family activity at Namaste? Literacy Night because we get to wear our pajamas, read and have cookies and milk.
What is your favorite book? I Spy.
How would you describe Namaste? A place to learn.
What is your most fun memory at Namaste? When our teacher Ms. Lola read a book about dinosaurs and we made dinosaur puppets.
These preliminary results indicate that Namastes immersion intervention holds promise and merits further study. Consortium to Lower Obesity in Chicagos Children (CLOCC)
